Animal Capture & Relocation
Animal Pest Management Services specialise in live capture of wild or feral animals and native fauna for assessment, monitoring or relocation. This service is designed to safely and humanely remove wild animals from unwelcoming locations, and is predominately used for birds, all native fauna (including snakes, possums), deer and even escaped domestic animals.
Capture and relocation services, as well as fauna spotting of native fauna can be required as a result of pits and drain work, vegetation clearing, urban developments, reintroduction programs and monitoring and research using radio/GPS collars.

WILD ANIMAL RELOCATION
We use our decades of experience researching and handling native fauna to provide professional animal relocation services that ensure efficient, long lasting results. We don’t treat animal capture and relocation as a band-aid solution, paying careful attention to relocations that have the animals and the general public’s best interests at heart.
Chemical immobilsation using sedatives is a technique we have used extensively over the past 25 years.This can include the use of dart guns (tranquiliser guns).
Where trapping on some sites prohibits the use a firearm, such as fox or feral cat trapping on some mine sites, we have used chemical immobilisation to remove the animal from the trap before humane euthanasia. We have previously used this technique on dozens of mine sites for many years.
Using our dart/tranquiliser gun allows us to capture and relocate animals such as kangaroos, or to immobilise animals for the fitment of tracking collars (e.g. foxes, wild dogs, feral cats, feral pigs, donkeys etc) and to capture animals for study, research or disease management.
The use of a dart/tranquiliser gun can mean that troublesome domestic animals (such as dangerous dogs at large) can be captured safely, without the use of lethal destruction by firearm in the streets or in the public domain.
The use of dart gun in conjunction with chemical immobilization with sedatives requires specialized training and experience. It is an exact science that not only requires knowledge of the tranquilizer, but also a high degree of expertise and experience, as well as basic knowledge of anatomy, physiology and behaviour of the animal. A sound knowledge of exterior ballistics is required to have the ability to deliver the dart to the right location on the animal at various ranges in differing situations.
